This restaurant is great any time of the year.
I have enjoyed meals at the bar outside and at the tables inside. I highly reccommend dining here. The decor is perfect and the food is authentic.

Great meal -- buffalo burgers, mac 'n cheese -- best margarita EVER!

Wonderful service, fantastic decor -- enjoyed the atmosphere . . .

Highly recommend all aspects of this restaurant!

Warning -- it is VERY popular, so go early, or make reservations. They told me that if you are doing on a Saturday night, you should consider calling as much as 2 weeks ahead . . .

We had made a reservation asking for outside. They said they couldn't guarantee it. When we arrived we were told there was a wait for outside. That was fine it was a beautiful night and we had picked this restaurant so we could sit outside. This decision seemed to annoy the hostess who asked us every 5 minutes if we would take an inside seat. Other than that all of our food was very good: Navajo fry bread, chips and guacamole, quesadillas elk burger. All enjoyable

The menu has a lot of fresh takes on traditional southwestern dishes. Menu has a great variety and everyone was happy with what they ordered, when it finally came....
On the other hand, the waitstaff was completely disorganized. They seemed understaffed for a Friday night. We waited quite a long time for our appetizers to show -- even the chips and salsa were a wait. On top of that they gave us a handful of chips and a couple teaspoons of salsa for 4 people -- it was laughable considering that they charge for this. The waiter finally recognized and brought a larger serving on his own, but this was a sign of things to come. Empty drink glasses stayed on the table throughout the meal; we found the silverware dirty when we got to the table and the waiter forgot to replace it; and then there's the waiting, waiting, and waiting for service.
Next time I want to pay that much for a meal and get terrible service, I'll go to Europe! It's really too bad because the food and atmosphere are really original.

The food was fresh and delicious, some it prepared tableside. This is a very popular restaurant and 6:30 the bar was jumping. Go early if you want to eat well, go later for eating and the scene.
